Girls Involved In Schools Football

Eight Lurgan Town FC girls played for Lurgan Junior High School on Wednesday in the Electric Ireland IFA Schools Festival Day. In the year 8/9 section there were over 60 teams with the girls unfortunately losing the quarter final game one nil in a game they dominated. That was their only defeat in 7 games. They scored 23 goals and only conceded 2. A great achievement by the team to reach the last 8. The clubs school coach Phil McKinley was impressed by the skill and commitment on the day. Alex McILwaine finished with 7 goals for the team.
